Frank Lucarelli,

"Dave has tried just about everything under the sun. He is in a word the ultimate experience go-getter. His enthusiasm and passion is incredibly contagious and he is always willing to attempt what the masses would call crazy. What people may not know is that Dave is also a genius when it comes to showing and providing value to the people he represents. Dave has established a sound understanding of what it takes to create a win win situation with sponsors and businesses, something that is often very difficult. Dave's advice on life and business are backed by experiences few people have ever or will ever attempt. You would be crazy not to seek his advice. "

Client Video Testimonial:

"If you want to play harder, faster and longer, Dave will get you dialed.  In the snow, on the water and in the dirt, Norona's got the gear, set-up, training and deals figured out.  Playing hard isn't as easy as people think, it takes a ton of knowledge, experience and preparation. Dave's advice will help you achieve your sporting goals whether they be recreational or competitive."

"Dave Norona's presentation was FANTASTIC and definitely motivating...."
Kathy Paddon, AIC Limited

"I feel extremely fortunate to have met Dave Norona in 1995,and even more fortunate to have become a training partner, race partner, and more importantly, a good friend. Dave and I have adventured together from Alaska to the Outer Hebrides, to Morocco and New Zealand, and through it all he has inspired me to not only perform at my highest level, but to enjoy the experience throughout our gruelling treks.

No matter what adversity befell us Dave always responded with the most positive attitude, and quite frankly turned what could have been an unpleasant event into a great memory that will stay with me forever. Dave is one of a kind, he lives his life to the fullest and is absolutely wonderful to be around. My only regret is business and family pressures don't let me spend more time with him. He inspires me to enjoy every day that I live on this earth."

"... Dave's presentation yesterday was phenomenal. Our students' feedback was very positive.  Thank you so much for helping us with our Planning 10 program."

"As one of the world's most accomplished adventure athletes, Super Dave has mastered the skills of the most demanding sports in the most extreme conditions.  Many of us dream of having the ability to excel in some of these outdoor pursuits, or at least have the ability to participate on a recreational level without risking death or humiliation!  With the knowledge, talent and leadership of a seasoned pro, together with an attentive patience and eager willingness to share, Dave has taught me about life's most important ingredient - play.  If you want to take the next step towards fulfilling your lifestyle dream, I cannot recommend Dave's services enough."

"Dave Norona was an excellent, descriptive speaker. His informative presentation was both captivating and inspiring. Many students were enthralled by the numerous experiences Dave encountered, and ignited some intrinsic motivation for others to extend themselves toward extra- curricular activities they normally would not try or do. I highly recommend Mr. Norona to other schools and to other programs. We hope Dave will be able to visit us next year."

" I just want to extend another massive thank you to you for all that you did to make Richard's 40th Birthday so much fun. Although I knew I wanted some sort of surprise backcountry adventure for him, you took my rough idea and created an event for Richard and his  buddies that far surpassed my expectations, and that none of them will ever forget.
Besides helping me plan an event that would create life long memories, it was your organization and execution of the day that insured everyone was prepared, safe and wanting to do it all over again! It is worth mentioning, that when you have guys like Rich and his friends i.e.: owner of G3, CEO of MEC, Mountain Hardwear Rep and so on... it takes a lot to impress them with any kind of backcountry day...these boys "have been there and done that" you could say, but you totally blew them all away. They are still in awe.
I am forever grateful to you for your time and incredible energy that you dedicated to me to bring my vision to reality.
I agree with the masses. You are least in my house."
